In the first week of June I drove over to Lafayette, IN to meet up with some friends: Olaf from Illinois, Miciah from Michigan, and Mike from Indiana. It was a tri-state roundup! I don't think any of us had any lifelist ambitions other than perhaps some rare suckers like river redhorse, spotted sucker, or black buffalo. Mostly we were getting together to hang out and catch up. I started off throwing a pearl colored curly tail jig and was surprised to hook up with a pretty sizeable buffalo.
